Worming my horse mid Dec - vet said either QuestPlus (can't get...backordered), Equimax or ZGold. Are there any differences between Equimax and ZGold besides the histories of mouth ulcers with ZGold? (which I remember my horse getting a few way back, so leaning toward Equimax). Looks like same ingredients but different percentages.
I perfer equimax it worms a bigger horse. zgold only has 1.55ivermectin and7.75of the praziquantel wich i dont think is enough. i use equimax spring and fall,then do fecal egg count test three times a year all my horses egg counts are low so it must be working.
I much prefer the Equimax. More bang for the buck and no reports of mouth sores. And yes, Equimax is listed as safe for pregnant mares. Zimectrin Gold isn't - no did say it was on the package I looked at last month.

"I don't know why Zimectrin Gold is still on the market. I wouldn't use it if they gave it to me for free."
DITTO !!! I used it years ago, first and last time. People that think they have used it safely just cant see where it is burning their horse further down according to my vet. I cant believe there has not been a class action suit with all the injuries and vet bills involved. This subject seems to come up about every 6 months !?!?!
